A note from Summers:
The Lint In My Pocket is a blog that, selfishly or not, was created to share my poetry; however, it’s become more of a journal, a place where I simply spill my thoughts regarding poetry, books, literature, etc. It’s also recently become a place to express my keen interest in America’s Civil War. Finally, here on this blog, I do my best to promote my book, Private Hercules McGraw: Poems of the American Civil War. See if a simple man’s mind has anything worthwhile to offer.
